The idea that corporate IT activities must be closely aligned with a company's business needs and objectives is passé. In fact, it is increasingly difficult to separate business operations from IT operations. In most organizations, those once-distinct worlds are now just different sides of the same coin. With business success tightly bound to the effectiveness, efficiency and agility of IT infrastructure, the days of IT working in an isolated and insulated technical realm are long gone. At the same time, the pace and demands of business have increased dramatically, driven by the very capabilities provided by advanced IT and communications technologies. This paper explores how flexible, future-proof architecture and infrastructure intelligence delivered by HP BladeSystem platforms provide a foundation on which IT can meet today's - and tomorrow's - business and technology demands.
